Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers 2017

Domaine Armand Rousseau

Terroir: Domaine Rousseau owns just over 2 acres of this small Premiere Cru that sits directly in front of the domaine and just outside of the walls of Clos St Jacques.

Vinification: Grapes are meticulously sorted as they arrive in the winery. Following a cool maceration lasting 5-7 days the must travels by gravity into barrel where it will stay for the entire vinification process lasting typically 18-24 months. Each Armand Rousseau wine is blended unfiltered.

Just ten cases of this wine are imported into the U.S. Please consult your local FWS rep for availability.

    "The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru is a step up from the Lavaux Saint-Jacques: more intensity, more red fruit, perhaps even more panache. According to Cyrielle Rousseau this had just started to open up the week of my visit. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannin, quite plush red fruit, rounded and sensual with a very precise finish that fans out with aeration. This might be the most seductive 2017 from Rousseau this year."
    Grade: 92-94 points

    "One of the highlights of this year's portfolio chez Rousseau, the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers wafts from the glass with a lovely bouquet of red cherries, berries and grilled meat that's complemented by top notes of peony, blood orange and cedary oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered with a deep core, beautifully refined tannins and a long, precise finish. Based on this barrel sample, this Cazetiers will surpass the domaine's Lavaux Saint-Jacques and several of its grands crus in depth, completeness and delineation."
    Grade: 91-93 points
